Conversation On the Via

Post  PresidentRagman on Sat May 07, 2011 12:10 pm

--
(ooc: i didn't see the thread for this so i started it. this is for the converstaion between Prime, Ryuk, and Ragman.)

--
After listening to Ryuk whine to the station for severall minutes, Ragman looked at Prime and said "So what do you think is the best chance for getting out of here? I am thinking that we should comeup with something. I left my slow cooker on and don't want to buy my gumbo."

"Hey, Via, what is going on outside? I am gonna guess that you can look out. Oh, and by the way, what exactly is 'E.O.D. Protocol 121'? I haven't talked to any Sephir or another Via station so i feel a little out of the loop here."

Looking to Prime, "So how'd ya do in your duel? i see ya got a limp there."

Ragman sits down and prepares to have a nice little chat.

Looking over at Lt. Ryuk, ragman shook his head. "Are you gonna keep bawling all day or will you be joining us in this discussion? you aren't the only one who had a bad childhood, and yours sound like a vacation compared to how i was raised. So if you feel like being an adult, please come join our chat over here, um 'kay?"

Ryuk looks over at Ragman, "If you had any ideas about what to do, you should be doing them, not talking about it. I'm going to stay here talking to Via, to see if she will help us out. After all, she did put use into this cocoon."

The Via replies, "I did not turn this into what it is on purpose. My internal quarantine sensor has been exposed to a metal which corrupted its internal immune system and forced it into E.O.D. mode. Now none may enter or leave, and I cannot even defend myself anymore. Your own weapons will have been rendered into healer beams to prevent violence inside this space station. We have unlimited production capabilities for your necessary air, water and food. Our entire historical record and entertainment collection are available to be viewed. One of the most popular was this one"

What appeared to be a screensaver following a visual central point of light that altered the surrounded lights and colors. Soft music played.

Via continued, "I do not like this turn of events either. But the Broadcasting Station 0 was here and it sent our internal security on extreme alert. Now this exposure to what your kind call Zero Metal has finished what the Quiet must have hoped for. Now we cannot follow him. The Quiet and his child, Broadcasting Station 0 will be a great threat to your data integrity."

"What questions do you have of the Via Sister-stations?" asked the A.I.

Via, i would not do that if i were you. If you were able to call the other stations here, they might become infected with whatever '0' did to you, and with the presence of so much zero metal on your hull be affected similiarly to you. Until we can figure something out, I would ask that you tell them to stay away if able.

You said that our weapons were "rendered into healer beams" and yet most of wht would be considered my weapons are just biological parts of me. I don't feel any different. Are you sure that we were affected?

Oh, and Ryuk, if you hadn't been so whiney, you would have noticed when i already asked Via what was happening during your tantrum.

Prime, any thoughts?

"Apologies, Ragman. I am in the midst of coordinating hundreds of experiments...finishing in three seconds..."

Prime stood from his quiet revere, flanked by his seven companions.

"Ryuk, I can answer for the station in this instance, it does not need additional defenses. The defenses of this station can quite well stop the weapons of whatever is outside. Even Annihilation cannot penetrate these walls. It is a delightful puzzle.

We need to know a few things; the nature of the EOD protocol, the rules surrounding our quaranten, and the reason why this metal triggered this response. The metal is sentient, and refuses to be a part of a weapon. Such a directive is...open ended. In such a light, I could see why it could be quarantened. However, we must learn if we are considered contaminated.

Beyond which, let us get a view of the outside..."

Prime used his connection to the Unity to begin triangulation of his position, summoning small probes to surround the sphere of the Zero metal. He tore some of his silvered cloak, and put it on the floor. As the assembled watched, the cloak shifted, becoming a monitor linked to Prime's sensors.

"Station, is there a name by which I could call you? I would know what the priorities of the E.O.D. protocol are. In particular, why did this metal trigger your protocol, and is there a way to make a smaller containment around the metal such that the larger containment might be lifted?"

Prime turned to the Ragman. "Further, it seems you still have a residual link to Fate, were you aware? It might help us in this case."

"Prime,
i had thought about that. when the hand of Fate was attached to me, my blood flowed through it and back to me. It was a living part of me. there was bound to be if nothing else slight transfer of single cells back and forth. but after its anihilation, i stopped having the dreams about what your demons were up to, so i stopped losing as much sleep over it.
I just never tryed to see if i gained any powers or abilities from it. i have enough talents i am working on developing as it is.

Prime thought for a moment

"That...may help us eventually. The Metatrons of Fate have been sealed away in another reality for some time. When they do eventually get free and try to kill u s all, lets be in touch.

For now, though, do you think there is anything else we need to know?"

Prime placed a hand on one of his vrangian guard; after having a quick uplink communication wherin Prime receives approval to change her data storage systems, Prime does so, growing her data storage and butting a buffer between it and the rest of her mind, lest she become overwhelmed with too much data.

Via station, Else -12B has considerable data storage. Can you quickly share with us data regarding Quiet and Broadcasting Station 0? I would know what it is you intended to pursue."

The Via considers for a moment the many things said, and says, "Ryuk of TRILAT, we can call in other Via Sister-Stations to our aid, but we do not know any other traps our enemies may have set. We also are safe from attack inside here.

Ragman, your body parts are not changed. The Sephir would have left your organics functional.
Only technological weapons have been changed.

Prime Downloading beginning (at that moment Ragman felt the hand pulse and information began downloading into him as well. As a member of Unity, Lt. Ryuk was able to download the information moments later by the uplink.

Sephir known as The Quiet. The Quiet believes that only by silencing all life capable of warfare can Entity Omnipotent Designate: Warmonger be defeated. He will leave plant and fungus incapable of conscious thought, but all creatures capable of conscious thought and mobility would be wiped out.

During the Sephir's own time, The Quiet was a rebellious Sephir. His energy form did not vibrate at the same frequencies as the other sephir and only at his loudest could he be percieved by the other Sephir. So the Quiet learned from all other species available for his study.
In his studies he learned of the Nightmare Lords and their fearful masters. He learned of the Ancient Evils, and of the rebellion of Warmonger. He tried to make the other Sephir fearful of the Warmonger, but they ignored the Quiet. The Quiet finally turned on the rest of the Sephir [Section deleted due to lack on clearance] and the Sephir deployed the Uroborus which [ Section deleted due to lack of clearance]. With Quiet finally restrained in a specially designed Via that would survive the aeons if not disturbed, the Sephir went on with their society and their creation of a race of Mekanoids to conquer new planets.

When the people of this age released the Quiet it began its mission again. Without any Sephir to stop it, the Quiet has now spread through the FTL Relay Networks created by other species.
Quiet has even birthed Broadcasting Station Zero to accomplish this goal. The Zero weapon creates a living metal which has been designated as Zero Metal by residents of this dimension. Zero Metal is living and will alter to absorb all nearby weapons and attacks into its own growth rate. It has no effect on simple close combat weapons, or biological implants, but it will alter cybernetics and technological devices to make them impossible to use to hurt living creatures.

Looking down at his arm, "well, that tingles a bit. I guess i was right when i thought that the Hand had sent a spike down into the bone. I must have really pissed off the Augar that they didn't notice."

Rubbing his wrist, "i would how it must have reacted to the destruction of both the right and left Hands. This fragment is the last active piece of Fate One." Shake his head, he thought 'crap, if Augar figures out that Fate is still in me, those ugly pukes are gonna try to get it again. not sure if i really want to annihilate myself again."

looking around the room, "So Organic weapons are not affected by Zero metal. Isn't that interesting as that is my personal field of study. If only i hadn't left my briefcase on my desk."

There are three ways to open up access to forbidden data.

1) Present a Sephir Energy Being who may recite the grand litany forwards and backwards and then as is custom all access to the Via Sister-stations is granted.

2) Earn the trust of the Via Sister-Stations by passing our tests and over many months all access will be granted.

3) Present a known person who can access higher security clearance. Only known mortal in this section of space would be Cha'ain Moghreson, leader of Fort Lendill.

4) Prove that you are a goodly being and true of heart

"Hence why I said only three ways remain.
Number four is currently irrelevant."

The Via said.

All three of the gentlemen could be seen shuffling uncomfortably after that comment from the station.

Prime grinned to Ryuk. "Excellent question! We are beginning to get somewhere. Ragman, on the off chance my thoughts on good and evil do not work, would you be willing to accept some communication nanites? You may be able to use these to contact your allies and get us a Sephir creature which can do the recitation. I TOTALLY lost that duel, by the way. That Palmodes is wicked with a rapier."

He turned his head to the station, and spoke clearly with all the weight of Unity Philosophy behind him.

"Via, as we have a moment, I would like to speak to you regarding good and evil. If nothing else, I would love to hear your thoughts on the topic. It is certainly true that I come from a demon. It is just as true that some of my allies perform terrible acts in the name of progress. I would not deny these points.

However, who am I to call those who strive and fail wrong? Part of the joy I get from being mortal comes from my mistakes. In time, the Kassanthians may learn there are kinder ways to meet their ends. In fact, the shadow generators I've made available may make a future for them where torture is unnecessary. What if I were to go in there with righteous fury, casting down those who would harm their brothers? I'd kill millions, and its unlikely their culture would change.

We act with multiple Universe ending threats hanging over our heads. The Warmonger seeks the wholesale destruction of all life. My former brothers, the Metatrons of Fate, have gone mad and plot the end of all sentient thought. The Iron Republic senselessly denies its people basic rights, while protecting a genocidal race that has silenced entire planes.

In light of this, where are those who are good? I am trying to deal with every threat as best I can, and yet the only beings that will assist me are those some would call evil. I work tirelessly, and thanklessly, when I could easily live a life of simple luxury. I've risked personal life and limb in an honor duel, simply to save the lives of those sworn to me.

I could go on, but we only have so much time. I invite you to review my memories. I may not be good by the standards of those I fight, but I would see where I fall by yours. We can work together to stop the Quiet by changing the parameters of your Quarantine, if you will let me into your programming. I ask that you give me your trust, such that this and all Universes can be saved."

Re: Conversation On the Via

Post  PresidentRagman on Tue May 10, 2011 7:30 am

Via,
while you are right that i can't be call ' a goodly person', i have always been true to my convitictions. It would be impossible to call me a 'goodly person' as i believe it states in my psyche profile that i am classified as 'amoral, lacking any moral compass or impulse'. Without morals, there is no good or evil, just results. i believe almost any actions is acceptable if it achieves your goals. The main driving force in me according to the profile VLAD has is my personal honor and dedication to my goals. I was not raised to consider anything but the 'goal'. whether I would be this way with out the teachings of my 'father' or not, i do not know. i make no appologiies for who i am.

I have never gone back on my word.

I avow that I am here for some what selfish reasons. I am here to try and convince you to join the Uloh Free Confederacy. I do this to try and balance the imbalance of power between us and the other powers in the universe. I created the UFC to try and find ways for various 'dangerous' reacs to live peacefully. Yes, I have stolen from the Iron Republic. not because i hate them or wanted to hurt them but because it was the fastest and easiest way to gain cloning technology so that the E-strain didnot have to infect other citizens to advance and propogate thier people, thus removing an impediment to peace between the races.

I am active promoting a policy of having the E=strain manslayers convert to Magnavores, because people are more able to deal with the slower repoduction rates of the Magnavore than the exponential growth of a Manslayer hive.

I would thus argue that i am true of heart. But as I can never attempt to be 'a goodly person' without losing that. I would have to ask what are the tests? and is we have time when can i apply to take them?

Glancing at Prime, "Thank you for the offer, but as i already seem to have enough people in my head between the remnents of Fate, Jojo and myself, I would have to decline to add any more at this time. If yopur nanites can get thru then Jojo will let me access the Tree of Knowledge. It has a interface to the FTL network on Uloh. By the way, did you agree to let Admiril Layne attack my colony on Haephestom?

I would have to view such actions by the 'TRILAT Planet Despoiler' to be an act of unpovoked War. I would hope tha you would reconsider.

Ryuk, you may have no recolection of you past but if you know where to look there are records and it may be a good thing that you can't remember. I have a clue that you may be better off now than before your memory loss incident.

Ragman,

I talked to an Uth, there was one incident he mentioned that I don't remember, but he was throughly unnerved by what he said was unnatural creation. I was informed that I only have existed for the past few years, and that the memories I have , barring one or two events, is the extent of my life. . .

Looking at the station, Ragman climbed to his feet and made a formal court bow,

"Via,

I apologize now for things i may have to soon do. I don't want to hurt you but i may have to cut a hole in your skin to exit. I will give you the frequencies to contact me in the future if you would like to talk. And would like to ask if you would be so kind as to give my a chance to prove that i can be a friend to the sephir. If any of this is not agreable, please say so.

Seeing as niether of your other guests have come up with a plan to exit the station, i may be forced to take these drastic measures.

my apologies"

Bowing again, he stood up and proceeded to look for a good place to start cutting in need be.

Really , Ragman? (in a mimicking voice) "I'm sorry, but i want to leave, so I'm going to cut you, Call me!" doesn't sound like a nice thing to do. And I though I was callous . . . .

Via, will Sephir mekanoids reciting the grand litany work?

glancing back over his shoulder at ryuk,

"Ryuk,

there is a difference between callous and unfeeling. Is it callous to inform someone that you may have to do something unpleasent so that they can be prepared and choose for themselves? Or should I be like you and just kill and maim without any thoughts toward the victims? There may be a reason that members of your own faction have declared you to be a war criminal.

And i have never claimed to be nice. I am an admitted sociopath. I don't worry or fret about what people think of me. I admit that i am capable of doing almost anything that will allow my goals to suceed.

Is it better to be polite in difficult situations or to be rude and childish?"

Ragman,

Where did you give Via a choice? You said that you were going to cut via, that isn't a choice. I don't kill and miam, and my own faction didn't declare me a war criminal, that was the iron republic. I have, from time to time, use death as a stasis point, where I kill someone and bring them back to life. I don't do things like cut a hole in the person and leave. As for being declared a war criminal, I was faced with watching thousands of wounded Iron Republic soldiers die a slow and horrible death, or ending it quickly for them. I though about trying to save some of them, but I didn't want any of them to have the crushing despair when they realized I wouldn't be saving them. So I made the choice to make them die quick, instead of suffering. If ending suffering for these people makes me a war criminal, then so be it.

As for being polite? Why would I be polite to someone that the first thing they say to me implies I am a child.
